Frillish has made its debut in Pokemon Go, and its evolution Jellicent has arrived too. Here’s how you can get both of them in the game.

Niantic are kicking off 2021 with plenty of events for Pokemon Go players to get their teeth into. There’s a Sinnoh celebration event, new Collection Challenges to complete, and a ‘surprise encounter’ happening on January 26.

It’s also been announced that Unova species Frillish has finally arrived in the game as a Battle League Season 6 reward. The water/ghost-type Pokemon was first introduced in 2010’s Pokemon Black and White on the Nintendo DS.

Now, you can get your hands on one in Pokemon Go, and we’ve got all the information you need to do exactly that.

Frillish has arrived in Pokemon Go as a Battle League reward.

As mentioned before, Frillish is a reward that’s been introduced in the second half of Pokemon Go Battle League Season 6. For trainers who are determined to collect ’em all, it will be a must-have addition.

When you reach Rank 20, you’ll be guaranteed an encounter with Frillish, meaning you’ll have the chance to catch one of the hard-to-get creatures and add it to your collection.

Frillish then becomes a potential encounter for all ranks onward.

There are still plenty of chances to compete in the Battle League and increase your rank, including a Kanto Cup in February. The remaining leagues and cups of Season 6 are as follows:

  • Great League: Monday, January 11, 2021, at 1 PM to Monday, January 25, 2021, at 1 PM PST.
  • Ultra League and its Premier Cup: Monday, January 25, 2021, at 1 PM to Monday, February 8, 2021, at 1 PM PST.
  • Master League, its Premier Cup, Master League Classic, and a to-be-announced special cup: Monday, February 8, 2021, at 1 PM to Monday, February 15, 2021, at 1 PM PST.
  • All three leagues and the Ultra League Premier Cup: Monday, February 15, 2021, at 1 PM to Monday, February 22, 2021, at 1 PM PST.
  • Kanto Cup: Monday, February 22, 2021, at 1 PM to Monday, March 1, 2021, at 1 PM PST.

Frillish can be evolved into Jellicent in Pokemon Go.

Once you’ve caught yourself a Frillish, you’ll probably be wondering how to get its evolved form Jellicent next. Like other Pokemon in the game, you’ll have to collect 50 Candy to evolve Frillish into Jellicent.

With the addition of Frillisha and Jellicent, Pokemon Go’s roster of Unova region creatures is slowly filling out. Make sure you get your hands on these two to keep your in-game Pokedex up to date.

Overwatch 2 leaker reveals worrisome details about OW2 development

Ever since Overwatch 2 was announced Blizzard has basically been dead silent on anything and everything related to the new game, and it could stay like that even after BlizzCon 2021 if new rumors are to be believed.

To be fair, Jeff Kaplan and the other members of the dev team did say they would basically be practicing “radio silence” on all things Overwatch 2 until it was ready, but that hasn’t stopped players from seeking out any shreds of information they can.

During a stream on January 15, Overwatch leaker Metro — who correctly predicted the new game’s announcement at BlizzCon a few years back — told Dexerto that in his opinion, we shouldn’t expect any huge news on the game at this year’s event when it happens February 19-20.

Jeff’s kept to his word, with basically no information on Overwatch 2 out there other than what we saw in 2019.

After Dexerto asked Metro if he had heard anything about Overwatch 2 news in Twitch chat, the leaker replied that we may be in for an even longer wait.

“I heard things, I heard that they’re really f***ing slow and that they’re delaying it, I heard they’re really slow at developing it,” he said. “From what I heard, it doesn’t sound good at all, it sounds like it’s very far off.”

While a release date at BlizzCon this year might be wishful thinking, Metro did add we could see some new heroes revealed and shown off over the weekend.

“They’re probably going to show a few new heroes at BlizzCon, that’s the main thing we’re going to get in terms of multiplayer, because there’s not much else to show,” he continued. “But, they’re definitely not coming for Overwatch 1, unless they change plans, but it doesn’t look like it, you know?”

Again, while Metro has been right in the past, it is wise to take what he says with a grain of salt since it isn’t an official announcement from Blizzard.

As for what heroes we could see revealed this year, Sojourn is obviously in the mix, along with a potential new Japanese hero a lot of players a cryptic teaser for with the Kanezaka mini-event for Hanzo was hinting at.

It’s easy to be torn on Overwatch 2, especially with this leak. On one hand, we all want the game to come out soon so we can play it and experience the new content. On the other, as fans, none of us wants to see the new game be the Cyberpunk 2077 of its launch cycle.

Either way, we seem to be in for a wait no matter how you look at it so, at this point, any update on new content come BlizzCon in February will be a breath of fresh air.
